Thanksgiving Series: Pecan Pie Muffins

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

I took the kids to the children's library for story time last week and the theme for the story time was turkey. The kids heard stories and sang songs all about turkeys and Thanksgiving. Afterwards, they always do crafts, they made this really cute pie with construction paper and attached came this recipe for pecan pie muffins and I knew that I had to make it!

1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup brown sugar (packed)
1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 eggs
1/2 cup (1 stick) melted and cooled butter

Mix pecans, brown sugar and flour in a large bowl; make a well in the center and set aside. In a separate bowl, beat eggs just until foam appears. Stir in butter. Pour egg and butter mixture in to the the center of the other bowl; stir just until moistened. Spoon batter into paper lined muffin pan, filling about 2/3 of muffin cups. Bake at 350 degrees preheated oven for 20-25 minutes until golden. Let it cool. Serves 9.

Here's an idea for you to give a little gift to your guests if you're hosting a Thanksgiving dinner. 
Simply wrap the pecan pie muffins and as your guests are about to leave, give them the sweet little treat as a "thank you" for coming to dinner.

And this ends our Thanksgiving series, I hope you've a lovely day
with family and friends!
